What Fresh Hell Is This?

Kilmeade's "Apology" Is Crap

Remember this? Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade, made the claim last week that "all Muslims are terrorists."

When he was outed as a bigot and an idiot, a spokesperson for Fox "News" said he'd clarify his position. Well, here it is:

And the text:
Meanwhile, on the show on Friday, I was talking about Bill O'Reilly's appearance on The View, and I said this: "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims." Well, I misspoke. I don't believe all terrorists are Muslims. I'm sorry about that, if I offended or -- offended or hurt anybody's feelings. But that's it. Now let's go over to Stuart.
Too bad that according to Mediamatters, he said that "all terrorists were muslims" not once but twice that day. The other time was his radio show. Listen at about 1:00 in:

He even adds the equally idiotic:
You can't avoid that fact.
He "clarified" on the radio saying what he said he should have said:

What he said he should have said was that all the 9/11 terrorists were muslim.

Which is, of course, true. But it's also a circular redundancy - that all Muslim terrorists are Muslim.

Kilmeade's still an idiot. And he's still on Fox and Friends.
